Print Quota

Frequently Asked Questions / Advanced Rate Sheet

Provost and CIO print quota system announcement 

  • After the add/drop period at the start of each semester, every student will be given a semester quota to be used for printing.
  • The amount of the semester quota is determined by the program in which the student is enrolled and is based on the unique curricular demands of that program.
  • As students use printing services, their quota will be depleted according to the printing rate sheet below.
  • Students need to install the software widget "PaperCut" via the software distribution page on LConnect to print successfully.
  • If a student exhausts their quota before the end of the semester, they can refill their quota from their Fenway Cash account.
  • At the end of the semester any unused portion of the print quota automatically rolls over into the next semester.
  • Students can view their print quota, recent print jobs, and refill their quota all online using the Wentworth Print Accounting website at Students can also download a Widget onto their computer that displays their current quota from the Software Distribution Server through LConnect.

NOTE: Please do not leave a lab computer or your laptop computer logged in when you step away from it. Not only is it a general security risk, but it allows anyone who walks up to that computer to print using your print quota.
